2011 Update for Sinosplice

The Sinosplice blog has recently undergone a few minor upgrades, including:

1. Vastly improved search. (It was terrible before. I myself used to use Google to find content on my own site.)
2. Social sharing icons. (I tried to avoid this for quite a while, but it’s a trend that won’t be ignored! My reward for waiting was being able to include G+ easily.)
3. Automated related post info. (I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time. Scroll down on a post or page to see related posts, NYTimes-style.)
4. iPhone optimization for cell phone viewing.
5. Tiny style tweaks.

Please let me know if anything doesn’t sem to be working right for you. You may need to clear your cache and/or reload the page a few times.

Thanks to Ryan from Dao by Design for once again doing a great job and being so easy to work with.

    I feel silly asking this – probably being one of just a few or the only reader who can’t see photos on your blog because my work network blocks Flicker. Would it be possible with the cheap storage options nowadays to have the photos right here on your server if they are giving you a lot of storage for your site?

  2. Can you talk about how you implemented items 1 (better search) and 3 (automated related posts). Did you use a plugin? If so, which one?
